Just imagine the crap if she becomes President.


Politico: “Less than a year after Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, former President Bill Clinton asked the State Department to approve a paid, videotaped speech he was asked to make at a gala in Shanghai, sponsored by a Chinese sports foundation. Wealthy hedge fund manager Kai Jiang wanted to pay the former president an undisclosed amount through a charity fund set up by his wife, Crystal Huang, a Chinese TV and film star who regularly serves as fodder for the Chinese tabloids. But unlike hundreds of big-dollar Bill Clinton speeches that sailed through a State Department ethics approval process while Hillary Clinton served as America’s top diplomat, this one raised a note of caution that the Chinese government might actually be funding the speech or planning to profit from it.”

Early warning - Bubba’s overseas buckraking raised eyebrows last summer, as reported by WashEx: “A joint investigation by the Washington Examiner and the nonprofit watchdog group Judicial Watch found that former President Clinton gave 215 speeches and earned $48 million while his wife presided over U.S. foreign policy, raising questions about whether the Clintons fulfilled ethics agreements related to the Clinton Foundation during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. …State Department officials charged with reviewing Bill Clinton's proposed speeches did not object to a single one.”

Defect in code' means wrong Obamacare tax info for 800,000 taxpayers !

"Wonder if I can blame this on Bush??"

A glitch in gave the wrong year’s data.

The 800,000 Americans who’ve just gotten erroneous tax forms for their Obamacare subsidy can blame a glitch in that used the wrong year’s data for the calculations.

Or, as one government health source put it, “an intermittent defect in code” that may cause tens of thousands of people to have to refile their taxes.

Precisely how and where that mistake was made is still being investigated. Whether it was a coding error or greater technological flaw, it’s only the latest sign that still has deep troubles despite a second enrollment season that went far more smoothly than the first

The Obama Presidency has been the amalgamation of some old and not-so-old movies all rolled together:  Keystone Cops, Dumb and Dumber, The Mouse That Roared and the Pink Panther series....all rolled into one.

"It Doesn't Matter One Bit What Obama Thinks 'True Islam' Is

There may well be a civil war going on within Islam, but it will be Muslims, not American politicians, who settle it.
Our President engaged in the same bowdlerizing of Islamic teaching of which he had just accused our enemies. We should, he said, be listening to, instead of the terrorists, “Muslim clerics and scholars” who “push back on this twisted interpretation” and assure us “that the Koran says:
‘Whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind.’” 

The Koran does indeed say that, in Sura 5:32. Yet, in the very next verse, conveniently omitted by Obama (5:33), it goes on to say: 

"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land, is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: That is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the hereafter." 

That puts a somewhat different cast on the whole “whoever kills an innocent” theme, wouldn’t you say?

An Administration Adrift on Denial

Why won’t the president think clearly about the nature of the Islamic State?

                                      Peggy Noonan,  Feb. 19th, 2015

Great essays tell big truths. A deeply reported piece in next month’s Atlantic magazine 
does precisely that, and in a way devastating to the Obama administration’s thinking on ISIS.

“What ISIS Really Wants,” by contributing editor Graeme Wood, is going to change the debate. (It ought to become a book.)

Mr. Wood describes a dynamic, savage and so far successful organization whose members mean business. Their mettle should not be doubted. ISIS controls an area larger than the United Kingdom and intends to restore, and expand, the caliphate. Mr. Wood interviewed Anjem Choudary of the banned London-based Islamist group Al Muhajiroun, who characterized ISIS’ laws of war as policies of mercy, not brutality. “He told me the state has an obligation to terrorize its enemies,” Mr. Wood writes, “because doing so hastens victory and avoids prolonged conflict.”

ISIS has allure: Tens of thousands of foreign Muslims are believed to have joined. The organization is clear in its objectives: “We can gather that their state rejects peace as a matter of principle; that it hungers for genocide; that its religious views make it constitutionally incapable of certain types of change . . . that it considers itself a harbinger of—and headline player in—the imminent end of the world. . . . The Islamic State is committed to purifying the world by killing vast numbers of people.”

The scale of the savagery is difficult to comprehend and not precisely known. Regional

social media posts “suggest that individual executions happen more or less continually, and mass executions every few weeks.” Most, not all, of the victims are Muslims.

The West, Mr. Wood argues, has been misled “by a well-intentioned but dishonest campaign to deny the Islamic State’s medieval religious nature. . . . The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic.Very Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers,” drawn largely from the disaffected. “But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam.” Its actions reflect “a sincere, carefully considered commitment to returning civilization to a seventh-century legal environment, and ultimately to bring about the apocalypse.”

Mr. Wood acknowledges that ISIS reflects only one, minority strain within Islam. “Muslims can reject the Islamic State; nearly all do. But pretending it isn’t actually a religious, millenarian group, with theology that must be understood to be combatted, has already led the United States to underestimate it and back foolish schemes to counter it.”

He quotes Princeton’s Bernard Haykel, the leading expert on ISIS’ theology. The group’s fighters, Mr. Haykel says, “are smack in the middle of the medieval tradition,” and denials of its religious nature spring from embarrassment, political correctness and an “interfaith-Christian-nonsense tradition.”

The Islamic State is different from al Qaeda and almost all other jihadist movements, according to Mr. Wood, “in believing that it is written into God’s script as a central character.” Its spokesman has vowed: “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women.” They believe we are in the End of Days. They speak of how “the armies of Rome will mass to meet the armies of Islam in northern Syria.” The battle will be Rome’s Waterloo. After that, a countdown to the apocalypse.

Who exactly is “Rome”? That’s unclear. Maybe Turkey, maybe any infidel army. Maybe America.

What should the West do to meet the challenge? Here Mr. Wood’s tone turns more tentative. We should help the Islamic State “self-immolate.”

Those urging America to commit tens of thousand of troops “should not be dismissed too quickly.” ISIS is, after all, an avowedly genocidal and expansionist organization, and its mystique can be damaged if it loses its grip on the territory it holds. Al Qaeda, from which ISIS is estranged and which it has eclipsed, can operate as an underground network. ISIS cannot, “because territorial authority is a requirement.”

But ISIS wants to draw America into the fight. A U.S. invasion and occupation, Mr. Wood argues, would be a propaganda victory for them, because they’ve long said the U.S. has always intended to embark on a modern-day crusade against Islam. And if a U.S. ground invasion launched and failed, it would be a disaster.

The best of bad options, Mr. Wood believes, is to “slowly bleed” ISIS through air strikes and proxy warfare. The Kurds and the Shiites cannot vanquish them, but they can “keep the Islamic State from fulfilling its duty to expand.” That would make it look less like “the conquering state of the Prophet Muhammed.” As time passed ISIS could “stagnate” and begin to sink. Word of its cruelties would spread; it could become another failed state.

But that death, as Mr. Wood notes, “is unlikely to be quick,” and any number of things could go wrong, including a dangerous rapprochement with al Qaeda.

Mr. Wood’s piece is bracing because it is fearless—he is apparently not afraid of being called a bigot or an Islamophobe. It is important because it gives people, especially political leaders, information they need to understand a phenomenon that may urgently shape U.S. foreign policy for the next 10 years.

In sorry contrast, of course, are the Obama administration’s willful delusions and dodges. They reached their height this week when State Department spokesman Marie Harf talked on MSNBC of the “root causes” that drive jihadists, such as “lack of opportunity for jobs.” She later went on CNN to explain: “Where there’s a lack of governance, you’ve had young men attracted to this terrorist cause where there aren’t other opportunities. . . . So how do you get at that root causes?” She admitted her view “might be too nuanced of an argument for some.”

Yes, it might.  It isn’t about getting a job. They have a job: waging jihad !

The president famously cannot even name the ISIS threat forthrightly, and that is a criticism not of semantics but of his thinking. ISIS isn’t the only terrorist group, he says, Christians have committed their own sins over history, what about the Crusades, don’t get on your high horse. It’s all so evasive. Each speech comes across as an attempt to make up for the previous speech’s mistakes in  tone and substance. At the “violent extremism” summit this week he emphasized Islamic “legitimate grievances” and lectured America on the need for tolerance toward American Muslims.

Of extremists he said: “They say they are religious leaders—they are not religious leaders, they are terrorists.” But ISIS and its followers believe they are religious leaders, prophets who use terrorism to achieve aims they find in religious texts.

On the closing day of the summit the president said, “When people are oppressed and human rights are denied . . . when dissent is silenced, it feeds violent extremism.” Yes, sure. But isn’t ISIS oppressing people, denying their human rights and silencing dissent?

“When peaceful democratic change is impossible, it feeds into the terrorist propaganda that violence is the only available answer.” Yes, sure. But the young men and women ISIS recruits from Western nations already live in peaceful democracies.

It’s not enough. They want something else. It is, ironically, disrespectful not to name what they are, and what they are about.

The ObamaCare Burden

Some Americans are in for an especially bad tax season.


The designers of ObamaCare were politically clever in at least one respect: They wrote the so-called Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act so that its most burdensome provisions wouldn’t take effect for years. Although Democratic members of Congress paid a heavy price anyway, President Obama was able to win re-election (with the help, to be sure, of the Internal Revenue Service). That means his “signature achievement” is largely secure against repeal efforts until 2017.

ObamaCare’s central provisions—the “individual mandate” tax, coverage mandates and subsidies for medical insurance policies purchased through exchanges established by a state—became effective in 2014. Thus some of the effects—most notably the exposure of President Obama’s if-you-like-your-plan-you-can-keep-it pitch as an outright fraud—materialized in the fall of 2013, as people were buying insurance for the following year.

Now we’re at the other end of the 2014 process, which is to say it’s tax season. Over the next eight weeks some low-information taxpayers will be unpleasantly surprised to learn that they owe money to the IRS simply because they don’t have insurance. And if you did obey the administration’s incessant admonitions to “#GetCovered,” you’re not necessarily off the hook.

“Janice Riddle got a nasty surprise when she filled out her tax return this year,” 

The Los Angeles resident had applied for Obamacare in late 2013, when she was unemployed. She qualified for a hefty subsidy of $470 a month, leaving her with a monthly premium of $1 for the cheapest plan available.

Riddle landed a job in early 2014 at a life insurance agency, but since her new employer didn’t offer health benefits, she kept her Obamacare plan. However, she didn’t update her income with the California exchange, which she acknowledges was her mistake.

Now, she has to pay back the entire subsidy, which is forcing her to dip into her savings.

“I was blindsided that the subsidy has to be paid back,” said Riddle, adding she didn’t even use the coverage, which she had until she qualified for Medicare in October. “I’m in shock . . . but I have no choice. Do I want to argue with the IRS or the Obama administration?”

CNN reports that “between 4.5 million and 7.5 million taxpayers received subsidies,” and an earlier CNN report cites an H&R Block estimate that 3.4 million of them will end up owing the IRS money on the deal. Of course taxpayers who overestimated their income and thus underestimated their subsidies will be due a refund—but one suspects those with an unanticipated income squeeze were likelier to drop their insurance during the year, which means that in some cases they’ll owe the mandate tax

There IS a bright side to the failed Presidency of Barak Obama.

                                                  WHY I LIKE OBAMA

1. Obama destroyed the Clinton Political Machine, driving a stake through
the heart of Hillary's presidential aspirations - something no Republican
was ever able to do.

2. Obama killed off the Kennedy Dynasty - no more Kennedys trolling
Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home.

3. Obama is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes! Dennis
Moore had never lost a race. Evan Bayh had never lost a race. Byron
Dorgan had never lost a race. Harry Reid - soon to be GONE! These are
just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama has
destroyed. At the end of 2014, dozens more were. Just think, in
December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In two election
cycles, they had picked up 14 Senate seats and 52 House seats. The press
was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican
Party. However, in just one year, Obama put a stop to all of this and
gave the House and the Senate - back to the Republicans.

4. Obama has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they
are. Sadly, every generation seems to need to re-learn the lesson on why
they should never actually put liberals in charge. Obama is bringing home
the lesson very well: Liberals tax, borrow and spend. Liberals won't bring
themselves to protect America. Liberals want to take over the economy.
Liberals think they know what is best for everyone. Liberals are not happy
until they are running YOUR life.

5. Obama has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone
since Reagan. In one year, he has rejuvenated the Conservative Movement
and brought out to the streets millions of freedom loving Americans. Name
one other time when you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in
taking back America!

6. Obama, with his "amazing leadership," has sparked the greatest period
of sales of firearms and ammunition this country has seen. Law abiding
citizens have rallied and have provided a "stimulus" to the sporting goods
field while other industries have failed, faded, or moved off-shore.

7. In all honesty, one year ago I was more afraid than I have been in my
life. Not afraid of the economy, but afraid of the direction our country
was going. I thought, Americans have forgotten what this country is all
about. My neighbors and friends, even strangers, have proved to me that
my lack of confidence in the greatness and wisdom of the American people
has been flat wrong.

8. When the American people wake up, no smooth talking teleprompter
reader can fool them! Barack Obama has served to wake up these great
Americans! Again, I want to say: "Thank you, Barack Obama!" After all,
this is exactly the kind of hope and change we desperately needed!!

9. He made Jimmy Carter happy since Jimmy is no longer the worst
president we've ever had.

From Joe....A Real Look At ISIS..Something Obama Continues To Avoid

"The majority of this piece coincides with my expressed feelings regarding ISIS and its' relationship with the Muslim entirety.  In my opinion Islam is not a religion of peace and the number of radical Muslim's (or at least Muslim's who tacitly approve of a strict Muslim world) are much greater than we suppose.

If we don't face up to facts and destroy ISIS and decimate those Muslims who are
dedicated to the same cause we can expect a near or total apocalypse.  If we do not stop them now it is only a matter of time before they capture nuclear weaponry and develop the ability to deliver a worldwide nuclear disaster, and achieve what they see as their destiny.  God help us if this should occur!"

This article provides the best understanding of ISIS and how it fits into the Islamic world of anything I've read. Our administration needs to read it. It's a little long but worth the read. 

 "We can gather that their state rejects peace as a matter of principle; that it hungers for genocide; that its religious views make it constitutionally incapable of certain types of change, even if that change might ensure its survival; and that it considers itself a harbinger of—and headline player in—the imminent end of the world."

Good News !

Good News From The White House Regarding Healthcare,Social Security, Welfare Benefits And Foodstamps.
If I Hear Anything Else, I'll Let You Know.

Spend a few minutes with Newt

No one quite says it as well and Newt:

Keep Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp open.

Foreign fighters are streaming into Syria and Iraq in unprecedented numbers to join the Islamic State or other extremist groups, including at least 3,400 from Western nations among 20,000 from around the world, U.S. intelligence officials say in an updated estimate of a top terrorism concern. Intelligence agencies now believe that as many as 150 Americans have tried and some have succeeded in reaching in the Syrian war zone, officials told the House Homeland Security Committee in testimony prepared for delivery [today]. Some of those Americans were arrested en route, some died in the area and a small number are still fighting with extremists.

Editor's Note: My opinion only??

The estimate of 20,000 fighters, from 90 countries, is up from 19,000, Rasmussen plans to tell the House committee, according to prepared testimony. The number of Americans or U.S. residents who have gone or tried to go is up to 150 from 50 a year ago and 100 in the fall. 

Why keep Guantanamo open???   So that any time our so called Security Resources nab a U.S. citizen attempting to join ANY Radical Islamist entity for any reason....we throw their ass into the detention camp and toss them in a cell with the biggest, ugliest, stinking Muslim they have jailed.

Appreciate the difference.

You should not underappreciate the contrast displayed to the world last week after ISIS released a video in which they burned Jordanian pilot Moath al Kasasbah alive.

At the time, Jordan's King Abdullah was here, in America, meeting with congressional leaders. He cut his scheduled visit short and before returning home.  Here's what he told one of our congressmen:

"He said there is going to be retribution like ISIS hasn't seen," said Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr., a Marine Corps veteran of two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, who was in the meeting with the king. "He mentioned 'Unforgiven' and he mentioned Clint Eastwood, and he actually quoted a part of the movie." . . .
"He's angry," Hunter said of King Abdullah. "They're starting more sorties tomorrow than they've ever had. They're starting tomorrow. And he said, 'The only problem we're going to have is running out of fuel and bullets.'"
King Abdullah then flew back to his home and before the sun rose the next day, his government executed the two ISIS prisoners it held.

Twenty-four hours later, President Obama stood before the National Prayer Breakfast and gave a speech castigating Christians and the West for intolerance and worse. You've heard the line by now. You should hear it again: "And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ."

 Obama has has actually moved into his post-presidential phase. He no longer cares about appearances, let alone consequences. He's just telling America what he really thinks. That's fine. It's nice to be prepared for what former President Barack Obama will be like in 2017. But the problem is that he's still president !
Islamic jihadists have been sadistically slaughtering prisoners on film for a long while now-remember when the murders of Daniel Pearl and Nick Berg were terrible novelties? This behavior is important. It means something.

Atrocities happen all the time in war. There are reports, for instance, of Japanese officers vivisecting POWs during the Second World War. The difference is that as evil as those men were, it would never have occurred to them to turn such things into jubilant public spectacles. Even the Nazis realized that the Final Solution couldn't be as out and proud as they might have liked:

The Germans didn't have social media, but they had newsreels, and Hitler knew enough not to make genocide available to Pathé or "The March of Time." He had considerations both domestic and foreign. In Poland and elsewhere, German troops had been ordered to shoot Jewish prisoners in cold blood, and their commanders reported back to Berlin that too many soldiers had found it sickening and demoralizing. So the purpose of "the final solution" was to make mass murder painless, at least for the perpetrators-more bureaucratic, removed, bloodless.
There are plenty of evil events in this world but Islamic jihadism is at the very top of the list for the dangers it represents for all nations.  It ranks far above "climate change" which occupies the limping brain of Barack Obama.

Our president's weakness is apparent for all the world to see. And weakness is, as always, a provocation. America still has 23 months left of Obama's tenure. One shudders to think how much ground evil will gain in that time.

A One Sentence Thought.

A federal government that has "Tomahawk" cruise missiles, "Apache,"  "Blackhawk," "Kiowa" and "Lakota" helicopters... and used the code name "Geronimo" in the attack that killed Osama bin Laden, objects to the name of the Washington Redskins.

Holland Orchestra walks our on Muslim Nutcase Director.

When the most liberal leftist country in Europe pulls the plug on Islam, the world is beginning to see the light...The Dutch orchestra walked out on a concert directed by a Muslim who made his personal beliefs known to Queen Beatrix of Holland. Now that took courage. Good  for the people of Holland. Watch the walk out. I’ll bet you didn't see this on your local news at 11 pm....Well done to the Dutch Orchestra! Dutch Orchestral Concert !

Queen Beatrix of Holland attends an Orchestral Concert. The Conductor, who just happens to be Muslim, proceeds to give the Queen a lecture on the "beauty" of Islam.  Then the members of the Orchestra stage a walkout! Great to see people with the courage of their convictions! 

From our Political Buddy Joe in Columbine.


You may recall that President Obama spoke of three former Presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, "much like this swap" he said convincingly.

CNN carried this quote, "This is what happens at the end of wars,"
(Incidently, Mr. President, we are very far from being at the end of our war!)

President Barack Obama boasted Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Deserter for five vicious Taliban terrorists. "That was true for George Washington... That was true for Abraham Lincoln and that was true for FDR. That's been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back... And that's the right thing to do."


That statement blatantly demonstrates that the most powerful man in the World and two
term President of the United States lacks even a grade school level of knowledge of American History; specifically, history as it relates to three of our most famous presidents and it demonstrates again that we have essentially elected a foreigner who has no understanding of the very country that he reigns supreme over. Then again, he was educated at an Ivy League school so you can't expect too much.

What's wrong with his statements? Let's keep it simple-- EVERYTHING is wrong!

George Washington did not become president until six years after the Revolutionary War ended in 1783. By 1789 there were no longer any prisoners for him to exchange.

Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in mid-April of 1865. The Civil War ended the following month. He was still dead at that time. No deals were made to exchange prisoners after the war. All prisoners were simply freed.

FDR died of a stroke before the end of WWII. Like Lincoln, he stayed dead after the war so he couldn't do what this jerk says he did. You'll recall that Harry S. Truman made the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan, ending World War II. He made no deals for prisoners. We went in and released them when necessary.

None of the Presidents that Obama noted were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any sort of prisoner swaps, let alone the 5 for 1, plus unspecified cash, for a deserter and traitor by our "57 States" president.

It should be pointed out that countless deserters and traitors were shot or hung during all three of the aforementioned wars.

What amazes one even more than the ignorance of the President is that he has managed to surround himself with a staff that is just as clueless. ... or willing, as the media are, to cover for his dumb, lying rhetoric and behavior!

This would be a REALLY GOOD swap !!

Obama for Abdulla.....Such a deal !!!

Ben Stein shares a Sunday morning thought.

'I was just going to talk about how Barack Obama is not a historian or an Imam. At least he was not elected to be an Imam or a historian. He is PRESIDENT. His job is to lead us and to be our cheerleader.

When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, FDR didn’t say, “Well, look at the way we treated Asians. Look at our embargo. Look at our help to Chiang Kai-Shek. Let’s think about how we want to respond. Maybe they should have the Pacific.”

That’s a President

.Obama reaching back into some insane history file in his head to equate the Crusades to the way that ISIS treats hostages… that’s not Presidential. It is just plain stupid. And whips up our enemies'

EDITOR'S NOTE:  We have had 6 years of "STUPID"...AND THERE IS 2 YEARS MORE AHEAD OF US.  Pray for survival !!!.....because there is no antidote, surgical procedure or miracle drug that fixes "Stupid".

Is terrorism an existential threat?

Barack Obama, obviously has a problem describing reality with his inability to label Islamic
Terror by its actual name.  At the same time he withholds the obvious nature of our war against terror threats.  We are in the hands of liars and cheats.  The ensuing article from Stratfor can clear away some of the cobwebs in our battle with the Bullshit,.

"Certainly, terrorist attacks do not pose an existential threat to the United States or the world order. Terrorism is a fact of modern life and the threat of terrorism must be kept in the proper perspective. The response to terrorist attacks must also be logical and measured. However, large militant groups with thousands of capable fighters — or in the Islamic State’s case, tens of thousands of fighters — that not only employ terrorism, but also insurgent tactics and maneuver warfare to capture and then govern large chunks of territory, are another matter. Such organizations pose a threat to the governments in the countries where they operate and in the region around these areas. Ultimately, we must be extremely mindful of the difference between terrorism,       insurgency and other forms of militancy.?"

Qualification for the job.

 In a news conference, Deanna Favre announced she will be the
starting Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers football team next season.
Deanna asserts that she is qualified to be the starting QB because she had spent 16 years married to Brett while he played QB for the Packers - even though she has actually never played football at any level from grade school up, never ran the offense of any team, nor ever played the game.
During this period of time, she became familiar with the definition of a corner blitz, the nickel package, man-to-man coverage, so she is now completely comfortable with all the other terminology involving the Packers offense.  A survey of Packers fans shows 50% of those polled supported the move.

Hillary Clinton makes the same claims as to why she is qualified to be the President of the United States and 50% of Democrats polled agree.
She has never run a city, county, or state during her "career" as
being Bill Clinton's wife.  When told Hillary Clinton has experience because she has 8 years in the White House, my immediate thought was, "So does the pastry chef."

When it comes to running the State Department, her biggest achievement was getting a US Ambassador and 3 other Americans killed, by pretending terrorism had been defeated.



Very curious bedfellows? But---not surprising with the network of nitwits we have elected.

Anyone  investigating Loretta Lynch, Obama's pick for Attorney-General to replace Eric Holder and immediately they could see interesting and unnerving connections. It appears that when Loretta Lynch started at Harvard, she co-founded an African-American only Sorority and there was only one other girl in this sorority, Sharon Malone. Does that name ring a bell?

You can't make this shit up - it's the maiden name of the wife of the current, corrupt AG, Eric Holder - Sharon Malone-Holder. BTW she is the sister of a well known civil rights activist leader Vivien Malone -Jones (one of 2 black students who enrolled in the all white University of Alabama).

Their ages were checked: both were born in 1959, and both went to Harvard at the same time. There were very few African-American students in Harvard in 1977-1981, so it is pretty certain that Loretta Lynch is an old college friend of Sharon Malone-Holder, the wife of the current AG, Eric Holder! Isn't that a CONFLICT OF INTEREST? Not if you are a wild eyed liberal in SIVE in power - it isn't

Why is this connection important? Because Eric Holder will inevitably be investigated by the Republican controlled Congress for totally lawless gun-trafficking to Mexican drug cartels in Fast And Furious, the IRS scandal, the VA scandal, the DOJ, NSA, EPA, FEC and other scandals. More importantly, Eric Holder has been covering up Obama's use of a stolen CT Social Security number of Harrison J. Bounel 042-68-4425, and Obama's criminal use of several different bogus IDs through his life, here and overseas.

It now appears a long time college friend of Holder's wife, was picked as the new gate-keeper, by Obama, to continue all of the cover up actions by Holder and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, to shield Holder and Obama from ALL future criminal prosecutions.

Remember -- Loretta Lynch - Obama's choice for our NEW Attorney-General.
Isn't it amazing how all the pieces to the Obama Puzzle are out there and as we are now seeing after this length of time, are finally coming together?

Not a good testimony for the credibility of our Senators performing their questioning.

If hard work and success is rewarded with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones ..Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If the government's plan for getting people back to work is to reward them with 99 weeks of unemployment checks with no requirement to prove they applied for it ..... Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more "safe" according to the government ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you are offended by this article, then I'll bet you voted for the idiots who are ruining our great country!

Rattlesnake Logic

 As long as we insist on maintaining the "moral high ground" we will NEVER
 win the war on terrorism! We're in a conflict in which we absolutely
 INSIST in playing by the rules against a maniacal group who have NO rules!

                                           RATTLESNAKE LOGIC

 After the Boston bombing the news media spent days and weeks trying to  determine why these men did what they did. They want to know what America  did(!) to make these brothers so angry with us. They want to know why  these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible. The  media is in a tizzy about this new era of homegrown radicals and about why  and how they can live among us and still hate us.

 A friend of mine from Texas explained it all to me: “Here in west Texas, I
 have rattlesnakes on my place, living among us. I have killed a
 rattlesnake on the front porch. I have killed a rattlesnake on the back
 porch. I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the
 driveway. In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter.

 I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject

 me with poison. I don’t stop to wonder WHY a rattlesnake will bite me; I  know it WILL bite me because it's a rattlesnake and that's what  rattlesnakes do. I don’t try to reason with a rattlesnake or have a  "meaningful dialogue" with it…I just kill it. I don’t try to get to know
 the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes  and convince them not to bite me. I just kill them. I don’t quiz a  rattlesnake to see if I can find out where the other snakes are, because  (a) it won’t tell me and (b) I already know they live on my place. So, I  just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.

 I don’t look for ways I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a
 non-poisonous rat snake...I just kill it. Oh, and on occasion, I
 accidentally kill a rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at
 the time. Also, I know for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking
 out there in the brush. In my lifetime I will never be able to
 rid my place of rattlesnakes.

 Do I fear them? Not really. Do I respect what they can do to me and my
 family? Yes!! And because of that respect, I give them the fair justice
 they deserve....I kill them...

 As a country, we should start giving more  thought to the fact that these jihadists' are telling the world their goal  is to kill Americans and destroy our way of life. They have just posted  two graphic videos on the internet showing them beheading Americans and burning to death the Jordanian pilot.  These sub-human inssects  are serious. They are exactly like rattlesnakes. It is high time for us to  start acting accordingly!

 I love this country. It's the damn government I'm afraid of!   Look who's new in the White House!

 Arif Alikhan, Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S.
 Department of Homeland Security

 Mohammed Elibiary, Homeland Security Adviser

 Rashad Hussain, Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic

 Salam al-Marayati, Obama Adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs
 Council and is its current executive director

 Imam Mohamed Magid, Obama's Sharia Czar from the Islamic Society of North
 America Eboo Patel, Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood

 This is flat-out scary!  The foxes are now officially living in the hen house... Now ask me why I am very concerned!   Do you feel OK with this?    How can this happen, and when will we wake up? We are quiet while our  Country is being drastically changed!

Don't ask a question unless you can stand the answer.

Oliver North was asked why he thought Obama, Biden, Kerry, or Holder didn't attend the unity rally in Paris.

He said, "Because it was for world leaders."

Tolerance... The perfect solution...........

Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Ontario, says: "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Toronto. I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs. Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance."

“That is why I also propose:

- Two nightclubs should be opened next door to the mosque; thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy," and the other, a topless bar, would be called "You Mecca Me Hot."

- Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called "Iraq of Ribs."

- Across the street there could be a lingerie store called "Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret," with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the goods.

- The other side a liquor store called "Morehammered."“

All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of us


There’s chutzpah and then there’s being self-deluded. President Obama appeared to veer toward the latter when he vowed to “redouble vigilance” against ISIS in the wake of the Islamist militant’s latest and most depraved atrocity, burning alive a pilot from a key member of the U.S.-coalition fighting the group. 

With mounting evidence that the current U.S. strategy is not meeting the president’s promise that the group will be “degraded and ultimately defeated,” and anguished pleas from Jordan and others to move decisively against ISIS, it seems unlikely that the president will be able to stay the course in Iraq and Syria. 

As in other conflicts, including Libya and Afghanistan, the president will be reluctantly dragged deeper into the fight. He was pushed into this conflict by political pressure last year, and as pressure grows he will continue to escalate it. But as prior experience shows, reluctant hawks leave the fight as soon as pressure abates or shifts again, not when victory is won.

What was that name again?     

 The  fact that the president wouldn't even say the name of “radical Islam” and instead chose to be evasive by denouncing instead “whatever ideology they are operating off of” as “bankrupt.” Hmmm?????. 

Which ideology is it again? Are they feminists? Dadaists? Jacobites? Maybe Jedis? If you cannot even bring yourself to say the name, how likely are you to maintain the fight even amid losses or public opposition? Remember that the “bankrupt” ideologies of the previous century, communism and fascism, led to the deaths of tens of millions and the oppression of hundreds of millions more. And they did not eventually fail because they were poor philosophical concepts, but rather because they were defeated.

It pays to hire the experienced.

 Sally Mullihan of Coral Springs, Florida decided to take one of the jobs that most
Americans are not willing to do.

The woman applying for a job in a Florida lemon grove seemed to be far too qualified for the job. She had a liberal arts degree from the University of Michigan and had worked as a social worker and school teacher.

The foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you, have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?"

"Well, as a matter of fact, I have! I've been divorced three times, owned 2 Chryslers …
and voted twice for Obama."

The Keystone Contribution

                    Finally!! Congress begins to function under Republican's care.

The change in Senate political management is already paying off, as shown by last week’s strong bipartisan vote to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. Just as important as the final vote is, os that the Senate had a real policy debate for the first time in years.

The five-year fight over the Keystone pipeline has become a proxy symbol for far broader fights over climate change, energy and the economy, and for the conflict between Mr. Obama and congressional Republicans.

It’s Time for the Flat Tax

"Remember, back in 2008 when candidate Obama was asked if he would raise the capital gains tax even if it brought in less tax revenue? He said yes, he would. Why? “For purposes of fairness.” Rule of thumb: the liberal view of “fairness” will trump sound economics every time."   
                    YOU JUST CAN'T FIX STUPID !

"If he could get away with it, I’m guessing the president would simply pass an executive order flat out confiscating money from the rich and sending checks to the middle class – not so much because it’s good economics but because it’s a good way to secure votes for the next Democrat who runs for president – and every other office"

Obama's hell bent plunge into National Bankruptcy continues.

The government ended 2014 with a total calendar year deficit of $488 billion, $300 billion higher than its 2007 deficit. -

While the deficit for 2014 was reduced from its high of $1.5 trillion in 2009, total public debt outstanding increased by almost $800 billion to $18.1 trillion at the end of December, about double of what it was in December 2007. Debt held by the public was just over $13 trillion, over 75 percent of GDP.

The deficit will continue to shrink through the end of 2015, but the Congressional Budget Office projects it will grow again in 2016 to reach $960 billion by 2024.

There is no shortage of examples of how the government wastes tax dollars, such as $125,000 spent on a lavish, invite-only Fourth of July party at the Canadian Embassy, $600,000 on Labor Department propaganda posters, and $5.7 million on climate change games, to name just a few.
Though the government has certainly been frivolous with taxpayer dollars, these comical expenses are not the main drivers of government spending. Spending on discretionary government services most people deem to be essential—roads, schools, defense, national parks, research funding, veterans’ benefits—are not the main problem either.

Rather, interest paid on the debt and mandatory “autopilot” spending on entitlement programs are what will continue to drive the United States further into debt. In its 2014 budget outlook, the CBO identified three components that will increase spending until 2024:

                                    The $50.00 Lesson

Recently, while I was in my driveway preparing my boat for winter storage, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.  During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said she wanted to be President someday.

Both of her parents, Democratic Party members, were standing there so I asked her,
"If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied... "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."
Her parents beamed with pride! "Wow...what a worthy goal!"

I said..."But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that!"

"What do you mean?" she replied.

So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds,
and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery
store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use
toward food and a new house." She thought that over for a few seconds,
then she looked me straight in the eye and asked,

"Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay
him the $50?"

I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party." And her parents aren't speaking to me any more..

You can'f fix "Stupid"

Have an Islamic weekend. Pretty scary when you realize who got us here.

Kentucky County Sees Instant Impact of Right-to-Work Law

Six weeks ago, a Kentucky county passed a right-to-work ordinance in hopes of attracting new businesses. It already appears to be working.
Warren County, Ky., adopted the countywide right-to-work ordinance on Dec. 19, after it became clear the state wasn’t going to move in that direction. Right-to-work laws prevent unions from having workers fired for not paying union dues. The Kentucky Legislature enacted home rule in 1978, leaving it up to local communities to make such decision.
“When our local leaders came to us and said without right to work we are sending away 75 percent of out-of-town job prospects, I knew we had to act,” said Warren County Attorney Amy Milliken. “Since we passed the ordinance, in the past six weeks, we’ve had two site selectors and one international site selector.”  There is more to the story.

New information from the federal government suggests workers’ interest in unions continues to fall, with union membership reaching its lowest rate in 100 years.  According to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics today, the union membership rate fell to 11.1 percent, with just 14.6 million wage and salaried workers maintaining membership.
In 2013, the union membership rate was 0.2 percentage points higher, at 11.3 percent.
The rate of union membership has been on a steady decline over the past three decades. It grew slightly from 12.1 percent in 2007 to 12.4 percent in 2008. During President Obama’s first year in office, however, it fell once more.

Weekend Grin

Bob Lonsberry speaks out.

"The Democrats are right, there are two Americas. The America that works and the America that doesn't. The America that contributes and the America that doesn't. It's not the haves and the have nots, it's the dos and the dont's. Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society and others don't. That's the divide in America.

It's not about income inequality, it's about civic irresponsibility. It's about a political party that preaches hatred, greed, and victimization in order to win elective office. It's about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.

That's not invective, that's truth, and it's about time someone said it. The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting "income inequality." He noted that some people make more than other people, and that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that's not just. That is the rationale of thievery."

"The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just. That is the rationale of thievery.

The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat. That is the philosophy that produced Detroit.

It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America. It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.

The Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope. The president’s premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful–seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices. Because, by and large, income variations in society are a result of different choices leading to different consequences."


Obama Budget Proposes 7% More in Spending Above Sequestration Caps

President Barack Obama will propose government spending that is 7%--or $74 billion--over caps he and congressional Republicans agreed to in a bipartisan deficit-reduction deal three years ago, a White House official said Thursday.

Mr. Obama's fiscal 2016 budget, due to be released Monday, will propose some $561 billion in defense spending and $530 billion in non-defense spending, the official said.

The amounts exceed the levels set under the 2011 budget law by $38 billion for defense and $37 billion for nondefense, the official said.
